"Don't judge him by his past record"?

Yeah lets give him 4 more years to truly drive this country into the ground!

I am so tired of all this. How could anyone vote for a man who has not improved our nation at all? He even has a majority in the house and he is just making things worse and worse!!!

Do not blame Bush for this, 4 years of whining is enough. Man up admit he is a failure and stop trying to fool the American people. We are not stupid!!!

I can sketch a path too:
Vote Obama out in November
Allow business to thrive

Unbelievable.

That pretty well sums up anything you might hear from Obama tonight, or anything said by Clinton last night. Both are enthusiastic and convincing speakers, able to inspire and mislead people into believing what they say.

However, neither can be trusted. One is a disbarred lawyer, who argues over that the meaning of "is" is, and was impeached (albeit not convicted) for misconduct. The other makes grandiose claims and soaring policy announcements, only to perform acts exactly the opposite of what he verbally promised. (Transparent administration, no lobbyists, cut deficit in half, etc...)

The fact is that Obama has done more to damage our country, our prosperity, our future and our children's futures than any president in history. Regardless of the motivation being incompetence, ignorance, or malevolence, or mere narcissism, he cannot be allowed to continue his failed policies.

Obama's path forward is over the edge into the abyss. We must not allow him to lead any longer.

Obama has had nearly 4 years to do SOMETHING productive, but now that Clinton speaks he's got a new plan to move forward? Really? Did someone deny him access to Bill for these last nearly 4 years? And since he was operating under the constriction of an ACTIVE Republican congress, what did that accomplish that Clinton is now taking/given credit for? We have to move forward, and the Clinton/Pelosi/Reid/Obama/etc., plan will only bring us further to total doom--even if that doom is denied and blamed on someone else.

The election is over. Get used to President Obama. He may not have done a great job, but the republicans fail to offer a better alternative. The republicans have spent 4 years demonizing this President and making things way to personal, and offering no solutions beyond cutting taxes for the rich so they can create new jobs. Most Americans are to smart to buy that line when they see corporate profits at all time highs during this recession.

President Clinton hit the nail on the head with his comment on trickle down economics. Remember the old adage fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me. Face it the republicans have no new ideas, and no plan to help the middle class.

The idea of increasing defense spending and cutting programs for the poor and middle class, not a great political strategy. Protecting oil company subsidies and cutting medicaid, not a great political strategy. Eliminating Obama care without a plan to solve the healthcare problem, not a great strategy.

The sad thing is that I think Governor Romney would have been a great candidate until he had to pander to the Tea Party and Grover Nordquist.

It should be as no surprise to anyone that this 'desperate' president will attempt to steal some thunder from anyone or anything to salvage his train wreck of a presidency. He tries to take way too much credit for the death of Bin Laden and he gets called on the carpet by CURRENT and FORMER Navy Seals. Who do ya trust - the Seals or Barack?? Now he attempts to bring in Bill Clinton to somehow rescue his sorry tail and convince voters that he is just like Bill. Yeah right! Bill was a liberal but he wasn't a radical - BIG difference. Obama never has and never will be able to run on HIS OWN record. It's all about distraction and deception and the assumption that people are just dumb enough to bye into the LIE and the HYPE. Unfortunately there are way too many people in this country that fit the bill.

The sad thing is that I think Obama would have been a great president until he had to pander to Occupy Wall Street, Code Pink, Planned Parenthood, Southern Poverty Law Center, NOW, NAACP, MSNBC, Al Sharpton, Al Franken, Sandra Fluke, George Soros, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Rachael Maddow, HRC, Dan Savage and Saul Alinski.

Who am I kidding: From day one, I never thought he would even be a marginally palatable president.

Did the awesome cliton manage to take any responsiblity for the loosening of the mortgage requirements that precipitated the Housing Bubble Burst?
No of course he's not responsible for anything he did or does. He just smiles and talks.

Obama drew it out. Romney sketched it. Etch a sketch, that is.
